Several of Edmonton’s talented Black artists who have been featured in previous shows over the last 10 years have returned for a retrospective year. Each artist is chosen based on the quality and uniqueness of their pieces as well as their personal stories.

Another major feature of the exhibition is The Wall. Here anyone from the general community at large can submit a piece on a 12 x 12 inch canvas that represents images and themes conjured up by the chosen topic. Themes in past have included, “Obama’s election to the Democratic Party,” “There goes the Neighborhood,” “The Civil Rights Movement,” and the term, “Got Soul.” This inclusive part of the exhibit has garnered outstanding feedback and growing interest yearly. The theme of this year is “Immigrant”.
